block the truth from coming out, that's the obama white house. the former secretary of state helped them do it. that's what they say. the focus seems mostly shifted, by the way, to clinton now, not obama. they seem to be after her right now. these revelations yesterday had to do with what hillary knew and what she did or didn't do during and after the attacks. for example, we now know that clinton phoned the embassy in tripoli the night of the attacks and spoke with the dcm, deputy chief of mission at the time, gregory hicks. hicks also said clinton's chief of staff, cheryl mills, tried to intimidate him after he spoke with the u.s. congressman, a republican, about the attacks without a state department lawyer being present. my question today, what kind of a picture does this all add up to? where are we headed with this? lisa myers is the great senior investigative reporter for nbc news. jeremy peters is a political reporter for "the new york times." we have two good people here. let's try to figure out the facts yesterday. what did we learn yesterday that seems to be exposing the secret

obama administration, thanks to the testimony of three brave state department officials. we are finally beginning to learn the truth about what happened the tragic day that four americans were brutally murdered in libya. in addition, it's becoming more and more obvious that following the attack the president and his aids deliberately ignored the facts and instead chose to write their own narrative about that deadly night. after reviewing what was said on tap toll hill yesterday it's clear that then secretary of state hillary clinton played a very key role in what i believe was an administration-wide national security coverup. according to the whistleblowers she is to blame for not only sending ambassador stevens to the unsafe city of benghazi, but also for the poor security conditions at the consulate. watch this. >> mr. nordstrom, who has the authority to place personnel this a facility that does not mean the minimum osbt standards? >> it's my understanding that since we were the sole occupats of both of these facilities, benghazi and tripoli, the only person who could grant wa
